The O'Connell Centenary. PUBLIC TEA MEETING AND SOIREE IN THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
Tlie O'Connell Centenary. Public Tea Meeting and Soiree in the Town Hall. Between 700 and SOO people assembled in the Town Hall on Thursday evening to commemo- rate the centenary of the great Irish patriot, Daniel O'Connell. The celebration took the form of a tea-meeting and soiree, and was undoubtedly one of the most successful, if not the most successful gathering of a like nature ever held in the building. The hall had been very tastefully decorated for the occasion, and appropriate mottoes were suspended about the room. The refreshments were provided by Mr. Mitchell, and we can honestly congratulate him upon the success of his catering. The M.B.. V. Band was in attendance, and the music dis- coursed by them, and the songs rendered by the vocalists who gave their services for the occasion, added much to the enjoyment of all present. The chair was occupied by the Very Jiev. M. Gibney, Vicar-General, and the vice chair by Mr. J. T. Reilly. Full justice having been done to the subst...

GRAY v. GERALDTON JUSTICES. TO THE EDITOR OL THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
GRAY v. GERALDTON JUSTICES. &nbsp; To the Editor of the W.A. Times. Sir, - I was one who preferred to hear both sides of the case against Mr. Henry Gray, of Geraldton before joining in the unwarrantable howl against him, when he was lately fined by the Justices at Geraldton. The other side appears from your report of His Honor's judgment on motion to quash the conviction on Wednesday last. His Honor is reputed to have said the justices had no jurisdiction in the premises, &nbsp; If so, it would appear that the ''vaulting ambition"" of the Geraldton Justices has on this occasion o'er leapt itself in the anxiety to punish the great reformer. I am Sir, An advocate of equal justice to every man. Perth, 7th August, 1875.

CITY COUNCIL. FRIDAY, AUGUST 6TH, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
CITY COUNCIL. Friday, August 6th, 1875. Present: The Chairman and Councillors Smith, Stone, Backshall, Letch, Summers, &nbsp; Mews, Wilkinson, Howlett, Dyson, Church- yard, and Chipper. MINUTES. The minutes of previous meetings were read and confirmed. THE WELD ADDRESS. Councillor Stone laid on the table the report of the Committee, appointed to inquire into the claim of the Hon. Secretary, in connection with an address presented to the late Governor Weld. The report stated that after careful consideration the committee recommended that all fair and reasonable expenses should be defrayed, and they were of opinion that the expenses tendered in the claim were not un- reasonable. While they thus advocated the payment of the amount claimed, viz., £11 6s., the committee in no way admitted that any such claim legally existed, but they considered it derogatory to the City Council to repudiate any expenses properly incurred in presenting an address to Her Majesty's representative.

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
Correspondence To the Editor of the W. A. Times, Sir,-- The editor of the Herald having closed his columns to any further correspondence on that well worn subject, the revision of the Bunbury Electoral Roll, may I ask for space in your next issue to reply to certain mis-statements of Mr. Haywards (vide Herald of 17th inst.), in which my name is very freely used, and which I can- not allow to pass uncontradicted. According to Mr. Hayward the Messrs. Dempster brothers were likely to have been &nbsp; struck off the roll, and "Stephen Hall" was "struck off" from information furnished by &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. Carey, "the bench supposing from his knowledge as a surveyor &c." In the case of Messrs. Dempster the information before the Bench on the day of revision as to their paying some seven pounds odd per annum only, for lands within the boundaries of this district, did not emanate from me, but from the hon. the conmissioner of lands to the Resident Magis- trat...

Country News. FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 August 1875
Country lUfos. FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) A very melancholy event happened here yesterday (Tue&daj.) A number ot French sailors were ashore from the Curieux. They are unlike the English seamen who generally conduct themselves in a very boisterous manner when on leave lrom their ship. The Fiench sailor is an entirely different being and while avoiding the uproarious class, delights-more in the song and dance. These amusements have been their chief occupation here when ashore. On Monday last, a number of the Curieusfs mea were on leave and when mustering hands to return to the ship, one was missing. He was subsequently found by one of the |water-police on the south beach, dead. His name is Josse Marie Courmeloh, aged 32 ' years, first class fireman. He appears to have been much respected by his comrades. His body was picked up near Thomas Cook's the blacksmith, about half past seven on Tuesday morning and while en route to the dead house, some of the French sailo...

The Western Astralian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY AUGUST 13, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 August 1875
%\)t (¡lestent australian ®imes. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY AUGUST 13, IS75. A pastoral address, in connection with the Church oí England Sustentation fund, has lately been issued by His Lordship the Bishop, to the, lay members of the Church in question. The Sustentation fund is a measure designed for " the formation of a permanent fund for the partial maintenance of a body of clergy," and originated in the Diocesan Synod. The address referred to starts with the intimation, that it has been issued by the desire of the Syn( d, which, in its report during the last session, said, that the matter had merely " made a start and little more," meaning, we presume, that the idea had been promulgated, approved of, and then left to lie inert, like many other undertakings. But, the Bishop continues, a lurther step has been taken, and the whole scheme is placed before the members of the Church of England. The sustentation fund, we need not say is a matter of pounds, shillings, and ^ence, and ...

VASSE. (From our own correspondent.) The Herald of 31st ulr., has & very fair re port of our political meeting held on the 9th, as well as a sensible leader on the same subject in which the following, and very natural ques- tion is proposed. "How is it, that he (Mr. Gale) comes to be a member of Council at all ?'" The answer is a somewhat difficult one, because h,ia supporters, judging by their station in lite, ought to have known that they were doing an injury, and almost inflicting a torture, to a man, who has earned the respect and good will of all hu neighbors, when they elected him to a position in which be cannot possibly feel at home. Mr. Gale of course is well aware, that his constituents will insist upon his acting with decision and determination on all questions of policy, and that he must form opinions ot his own therefore. He knows that his sayings and doings in Council will be criticised without any reference to his position in private life, and that he ought to...

Mr. Pearse said he would leave the suggestions on the matter to the gentlemen themselves.

GRAZING. BY A BEVERLY SETTLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 August 1875
GRAZING. By a Beverly Settler. The subject matter of this paper being upon the grazing question, I have headed it accord- ingly, but I might indeed have almost adopted the poet's more attractive words " Time's changes, " as the changes which are perceptible &nbsp; in the times and seasons, and which so mater- ially effects the grazing business, are perhaps not more remarkable than those which are going on all the world over. Still, it happens that many do not seem to notice them. That invisible motive power which, from age to age, is working gradual, and sure changes on all the face of the globe, leaves alike its traces on the seasons of the year as they pass over us. Physically upon mankind has time wrought many changes, and upon the works of the human race perhaps the most remarkable are traceable from the earliest times. Geographical "Time's Changes'' are no less traceable in the short space, I may say, of one generation. But of the "seasons" it is said there shall be "se...
